HOBBLE CREEK CANYON, Utah County, Aug. 10, 2018 (Gephardt Daily) — Law enforcement officials have identified the 18-year-old victim of a fatal rollover crash that happened Thursday in Hobble Creek Canyon.

The victim was Kiana Elizabeth Campbell, of Mapleton.

Utah County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the scene, on¬†Left Fork Hobble Creek Canyon Road near the intersection of Bartholomew Canyon Road, just after 2 p.m.

According to a statement from the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, witnesses reported that the SUV rolled, and the only occupant, now identified as Campbell, was ejected.¬†Officials say the victim was not wearing a seatbelt.

Officers from Mapleton Police Department also responded, along with ambulance personnel from Springville Fire and Ambulance. A medical helicopter was requested, but the victim was taken by ground ambulance because the helicopter was too far away.

Investigators said speed may have been a factor in this crash.
